No.

Hi,

Has anyone managed to set custom refresh rates using the latest AMD 14.3 beta drivers?

The driver patches using ATI 1.2.3 and the custom resolutions can be added to the CRU 1.1.1 but when trying to select it under screen resolutions/advanced settings/monitor there are no options besides 60hz.

Note: I've noticed this problem doesnt happen 100% of time, but I would say on 90% of my reboots the refresh rate goes back to 60hz.. There has been the odd time where it "sticks" but I don't know why.
I have no idea. I've never seen that happen myself. It's not a CRU or patch issue because the refresh rate is available.

It might be an AMD driver bug. Some people with Windows 8.1 and R9 290/290X cards reported problems with refresh rates not working properly after rebooting, but I haven't heard of that happening with older cards. The workaround in that case is to restart the video driver: http://www.monitortests.com/restart.zip

If that works, rename restart64.exe to restart-only.exe and put it in the Startup folder (Win+R shell:startup) to run it automatically after rebooting.

If that doesn't help, then you're having a different issue. Try completely uninstalling the driver using this: http://www.wagnardmobile.com/DDU/

Then reinstall the driver. You'll have to patch the driver and add the custom resolution again.

Do you happen to have Windows 8.1? See the previous reply for a workaround.

Yea, just strange I was just running 13.12 drivers 2 hours ago with the OC.

In your picture your panel is still sat in the metal frame with the rails screwed to the sides of the metal frame holding it in the case!...you con not tell if it a real glossy unless you remove pull the rails from the side of the cast lift the monitor upwards slowly so as you can unplug the wires from the back of the panel...then lift the panel out of the case and take it to your dining room table or some flat working space!.. Then you need remove the 2 rail from the side of the frame and then remove the metal frame!....Now you will be able to tell if its a true glossy...if you have tempered glass sitting underneath the metal frame sitting on top of a matte screen it is not a true glossy!...if you have do not have glass under that frame then it really is a true glossy!...simply removing the plastic bezel will not tell you anything

I think I may not go for a new display, I would like to wait until they get a bit cheaper again, as well as when i am in a better financial position (gotta insure my car). Maybe someday though, maybe someday.

I've already done that. It's a true glossy.

But there is a freaking blue line through the display. Its really annoying and i dont know what to do about it

I'm assuming you aren't OCed?
